What’s In Your Garage And Why Isn’t It Your Car?


Garage Clean Out In Orange County

Hands raised Orange County— how many of you put two cars in your two-car garage? One car in the two-car garage? One car in a one-car garage? According to Kelley Blue Book, the estimated average transaction price for light vehicles in the USA was $36,270 as of January 2018. That is a large investment to leave exposed to rain and sun just because you have shoved a lot of clutter into the garage.

As a locally owned and operated business, OC Junk Hauling drives all over Orange County. We see your garages. We see your closed-door garages; no doubt some of you are very embarrassed to let neighbors see inside. We are here to help you clear the clutter.

To begin with, you are not alone. Gladiator® GarageWorks, a leader in garage organization and storage systems, conducted a survey in 2015. One out of four respondents admitted that his/her garage was so unorganized that not even one car could be secured, let alone two.

Everything that does not belong in the house goes there. Old lawnmower to dispose of. Bikes. Exercise equipment to dispose of. Old sofa to dispose of. Holiday decoration boxes. Tools. Craft projects started but not completed (or ever will be). Old microwave to dispose of. Toys the kids have outgrown to dispose of. See a pattern?

And in a 2017 survey conducted for Gladiator, the Kelton Global insights research firm found that “one third of homeowners don’t even know what is stored in their garage.” No doubt that sounds familiar to you.

OC Junk Hauling has two suggestions. Let us take away all those “to dispose of” items, and then let’s organize what’s left.

After a free initial consultation, and with your permission, our experienced team will visit your garage for an on-the-scene evaluation. The time to do the clean up and cost will be presented to you. You may sign up for the service or take your time to think about it. No pressure on you.

Once you’ve decided that the project is a go, we will return to work with you to clear away unwanted items, pick up items that can be recycled, upcycled and disposed of.

Dealing With What Stays

That will leave us with just the items you wish to keep. Organization is the key. Don’t just throw items to the side. Consider “finishing” the garage with shelves and storage systems. Possibly you can place cabinets into the mix.

Zones are another idea. Segmenting areas of the garage for sporting goods, lawn and garden equipment, and other hobbies will make items easier to find.

This will have ramifications beyond keeping your car safer from the elements.

According to the Kelton Global survey, not only does a refreshed garage offer new storage possibilities, it also can increase property value:

  • 75% of Americans believed a  garage should be an extension of the home,
  • 65% of Americans expressed that they would be willing to pay more for a new home with a storage system and cabinets already in their garage,
  • 85% felt when purchasing a home, those having built-in storage systems and cabinets in the garage would impact their purchase decision-making process.

After our team has removed boxes and bags of unwanted items, helped move items into place for organized shelving, and swept up the floor, there is only one thing left for you to do.

Drive your car into your garage.
